Overview/Description
Malware is malicious software, used by attackers in various ways including disruption, information gathering, and gaining access. In this course we look at how malware is created, the attack vectors, and what countermeasures are available. An ethical hacker is a person who attacks an organization's security on behalf of its owners in order to discover vulnerabilities. Instead of taking advantage of these vulnerabilities, the ethical hacker reports them to the organization who can then put in place the appropriate countermeasures to protect themselves against malicious hackers. In this course we look at malware, how it is created, the attack vectors, and what countermeasures are available. This course is the sixth in a series of courses which can used in preparation for the Certified Ethical Hacker v8, 312-50, exam. The course has been developed in partnership with EC-Council and is based on their Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures V8 course materials and labs.
